Characteristics of the Elements

There is a vaporous, subtle and invisible quality to each of these things which we called the physical elements. The ancients have told us that all of creation was brought into being when the Spirit drew the four elements unto itself. These elements are called Earth, Air, Fire and Water. And they are controlled by Spirit.

Each of these elements possesses an etheric double. It is this essence which gives vitality, or fertility to the physical object. Just as the physical realms of matter contain their own forms of life, so too do the etheric realms. These entities have been personified as the many spirits and creatures of myth and legend. It is their activity which creates and maintains the vital essence within all matter.

The etheric powers of the lements also give potency to spells and works of Magic. It is within their realms that Magical powers ebb and flow. Thus are the spirits of the elements summoned to assist us.
